The secret to getting over any breakup is a dramatic hair change. So when news dropped that season seven will be Orange Is the New Black’s last, guess what Danielle Brooks did? 

The actress, who plays Taystee on the Netflix series, chopped off her long locks and started rocking a brand-new short wavy ’do.

Brooks debuted her new look on Instagram and captioned a photo of herself living her best hair journey life, “I got that new do boo. Catch them waves. #firstbigchop. Cut by @infamousmstish.”

Her longtime hairstylist, Tish Celestine, told Refinery29 the cut has been a long time coming. “She’s been wanting to big chop for some time now, but we’ve had some limitations due to work so we couldn’t do it,” Celestine said. 

She went on to explain, “Hair is attached to energy, and when you cut off old hair you make room for new energy. It makes you fearless.”

Out with the old and in with the new.
